Malakin (470) - Victoria, British Columbia, - APR 15, 2008
Hazy brown with a frothy beige head. Really nice aroma, but the flavour was a bit of a letdown.

Zilverenmaan (42) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2016
Redbrown ale with big but shortlived head. Taste of caramel, coffee, yeast and something fresh ( spices or hops? ) No bitterness though. Slightly oily with lively carbonation. Its a nice and even complex brew albeit rather watery.

zacgillbanks (4654) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2016
6.5% ABV bottle from Beer Museum, Brugge, Belgium. Hazy copper coloured with a red fruity and cola flavour followed by a sugary sweet toffee and cherry finish. The flavour is a little fake.

Slap, waterig vlak bier. Niets spannends aan, geen karakter, niets. Ik kan deze niet aanraden.

R2k2 (450) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2015
A somewhat cloudy, but good looking brown beer with a firm, slightly brown layer of foam. Besides the scent of alcohol, the aroma also contains the hint of grain and/or fresh bread. In its slightly sweet taste is also the hint of licorice. It leaves a dry palate, and the aftertaste is a combination of metal and bitterness. Een iets troebel, doch mooi bruin bier met een stevige, lichtbruine kraag. Naast de hint van alcohol zit in het aroma eveneens de toets van graan en/of vers brood. In de lichtzoet smaak zit een tint van drop. De afdronk is droog, en in de nasmaak de combinatie van metaal en bitterheid.

Bornyensis (321) - BELGIUM - DEC 5, 2015
Nogal een donkere bruine kleur, zachte bittere smaak, voldoende schuimkraag.

Large loose foamy beige head, sizzles down gradually, thin layer remains, light lacing; aroma of caramel, light fruit (pear, berries), bit nutty; taste is medium sweet and bitter, malty, bit fruity; medium body, watery to oily texture, average carbonation, aftertaste is mild sweetbitter, bit roasty in the finish; on the whole on the thin side.

Ferris (13199) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 23, 2015
Bottle - Loght sour and sweet cherry with some Woody notes. Clear copper red with a small white head. Malty with only a hint of cherry and a long finish. None of the crisp, tart or cherry notes I was hoping for. Not bad, just very plain.

Icedwarf (1343) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2015
Bruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zoet, caramel, ietwat anijs en chokolade. Goed bier.
